Young entrepreneurs launch new and affordable airline serving the Caribbean

On March 16, Ava Air made its first flight between Fort-de-France and Pointe-à-Pitre in Guadeloupe. The moment marked the momentous realization of a project imagined nearly a decade ago by an airline pilot, David Renard, and his flight attendant wife, Élisabeth. Named after their daughter, the founders explained to franceinfo that the airline sprung from a desire to make Martinique more accessible, as current flight options are limited.

As of now, the company owns only one plane and serves two destinations, Pointe-à-Pitre and Saint-Martin. The hope is to offer lower prices by cutting operating costs, and current tickets range as low as 48 euros for a one way flight. In the coming months, the company plans to buy a second plane and open routes to more destinations, including Barbados, Dominica, Trinidad and other southern islands. So dope!
